Kelly vs Firestone
« on: March 04, 2010, 06:02:32 AM »

OK I've narrowed it down to Kelly Navigator vs Firestone FR380, size
225R75-15..both can be had here for $77 ea, mounted and balanced,
including new stems... any strong opinions either way? Leaaaaburn?
others? Both are just granny all season  tires, but all I'll need
for my Fury III.  Burnouts-R-Not-Us.

KELLY..made by Goodyear and have a manufacturer's warranty from defects/workmanship.
I have no problems with mine on the barge.
Plus the sidewall is as close to a plain sidewall with the 1" whitewall.
 
dont care for FireBlown tires,LOL

I really like the 1" whitewals - do all Navigators come with those?
